A pre-eminent photographer known for his images of the American West, Ansel Adams (1902-1984) is one of the most widelyknown artists of the 20th century with iconic images that have been published and exhibited worldwide. This exhibition presents a selection of rare original prints, including vintage contact prints as well as later enlargements, showing an insightful evolution in Adams’ creative vision, process, and interpretation of his negatives.

Classic pieces like the 1948 image of an oak tree after a snowfall are exhibited alongside some of Adams’ more rare or lesser-known works. With a career that spanned six decades, Adams’ sharp-focus black and white photographs were created primarily with a large format camera and negative to achieve the level of detail and clarity that define his style. Adams also pioneered the use of the Zone System, a method to properly determine the exposure and contrast of a print.

Through stunning images of unspoiled lands, Adams’ work surveyed the grandeur of places like Yosemite National Park in California where he created some of his most famous works, playing an important role in the continued preservation of such natural reserves.
